SoCal

  We left Mesa, Arizona on the last Friday in December and before we took off to go to California for the winter, we had some maintenance work done on the 5th wheel. Since we didn’t get on the road again till the early afternoon we stopped half-way at Quartzsite, AZ for the night. Quartzsite … More SoCal

Grateful

A few days earlier than planned, we left Monument Valley in mid-October and drove six hours straight to Mesa, Arizona. We were glad to pull into a campground we were familiar with and neighbors that we knew. I’m forever grateful that we left Monument Valley early as I was able to see my young nursing … More Grateful

Run, Forrest, Run

Monument Valley on the southeast border between Utah and Arizona has been on our must visit list for a while. People might not recognize the name but recognize the famous scene in the movie Forrest Gump where he turns around after running across the country. That’s Monument Valley. The road where Gump turns around is … More Run, Forrest, Run

Questions are in no particular order.   What do we do all day? If it’s during the week, we are working. Brad is the main income provider … More Q and A 2018

(Warning: this … More To The Top…..Almost

Year Two

    Two years living on the road on July 30th. Two years since we took a chance, sold everything, packed up a 5th wheel, and took off exploring this beautiful country. It’s amazing all that we have done in the last two years and crazy how fast the time has gone by. When I … More Year Two

Summer

With mid-summer coming up, we had a list of hikes we wanted to get in (we didn’t even get to them all!) and we had a visitor mid-June. My younger sister had never been to Utah before and decided to come down for the weekend to visit us and see the area. We took her … More Summer

Our Hiatus

  Where we were staying in Utah County has an ordinance that an RV cannot be at a campground for longer than 120 days (excluding the winter months). At the 120-day mark, you must leave for 10 nights and then you can return. In June, our 120 days was up.     We knew this … More Our Hiatus
